Gay news, gay attack Staten Island, gay/celebrities, Latvia not in EU anymore?

11 07 2010

A gay couple was harassed by a couple of teenagers Wednesday at a White Castle restaurant in Staten Island. A group came in and when one of the guys looked at the group they told him:” What are you looking at fag.” When the gay guy replied: What are you looking at,” the group left. A few moments later one of them felt a bob to the head and they quickly ran out. Outside they got separated and one guy got hit and was semi-conscious and bleeding. He needed stitches at the hospital. Hope the cops found the fuckers.

Posh Spice, Victoria Beckham, says she is a gay man in a woman’s body. That is why she loves fashion, glamour and Lady Gaga. So David Beckham is partly gay, haha. One can dream. Soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo gets more and more gay rumors as well. The purses, baby through a surrogate, painted toenails, and now dinners with Lance Bass. I dunno ,probably just very metrosexual.

A European Parliament’s member from Democrats’66(my party) thinks that Latvia should be dismissed as a member of the EU for their anti-gay law. Great idea, but I think it would be better to let the whole EU go.

In 2009 there were 43% more complaints about gay discrimination than in 2008. By far the most is in Amsterdam( and you know who does it) Police does not know if it really increased this much or that people find filing a complaint easier. Probably a bit of both. Bad news though, Amsterdam with the closing of the mayor discos like Exit, Cockring etc and violence like this is really losing its gays capital title very fast. Berlin and Paris are already much better in Europe.

Gay news,GLAAD/the View,GOP Nevada candidate extreme homophobe, evil gay angels, Canadian landlord refuses gays

26 06 2010

GLAAD wants an apology from the View and ABC for lies they spread during an interview. Sherri Shephard and DL Hughley talked about the increase in HIV diagnosis in the african American Community and blamed it mostly on men on the down- low( gay men that are married/have girlfriends and also have unprotected sex with men. Even though this phenomenon exist, the center for disease control(CDC) has debunked it as a myth. Dumb Sherri Shephard does not know shit, talk like this is dangerous. For a change I agree with GLAAD.

The candidate for the Nevada Senate on the Republican side is Tea Party favorite Sharon Angle. The woman is tied to an independent party in the 90’s calling gays sodomites, child molesters, brazen pervert and disease-carrying freaks. Yep, that is someone you want in charge of a state.

A priest in the Dominican Republic wants to tear down the church’s artwork because the angels look gay and evil. The mural was made 12 years ago but according to priest Johnny Duran the church congregation cannot tell if the angels are male or female and they look diabolic. WTF??

In Canada a man has refused a gay couple as tenants because if he would agree, he would be going to hell. The man said he first thought nothing of the 2 men but after hearing from one of their sisters, who also lived in the building, that they were gay he revoked their lease. He says it is a crime against nature and is worried for the sister from the gay man and her son. They are devastated about the men not being able to live close to them . According to the landlord though God is more important than not discriminating. He might not go to hell but should go to a nuthouse.





Gay news, Supreme Court rules bigots be made public, European countries can decide on gay marriage themselves, Woman sues baptist church

25 06 2010

The highest court in the U.S, the Supreme Court, has ruled that the names of petition signers in Washington State Referendum 71 have to be made public. That means that people who signed an attempt to overturn a “pro gay” domestic partnerships law will be for all known as bigots. Conservatives tried to block the release of signatures fearing retributions, but all members of the court except for Clarence Thomas voted against them. Good news.

A High Court in Europe has ruled against 2 gays from Austria that wanted to get married. The court thinks the decision about marriage should be left up to the individual countries themselves and since there is a registered partnership in Austria that should be enough. As long the poor countries in Europe get their money from the Netherlands, Belgium and Scandinavia, they wanna have as little to do with our morals as possible and stay back in the Middle Ages.

An African-American woman sued her Covenant Baptist Church because they include gays and welcome same-sex unions. She says she gave$ 250.000 in past donations and wanted that back. She went to a gay wedding at the church just to see if it was real and she said it was disgusting. Now she dropped the lawsuit (because she had no chance in hell) and found herself a new bigot church.That from a woman who in her youth also was discriminated for being black. Unbelievable.





Gay news, gay acceptance Netherlands, scouts can discriminate, bullying law passes Senate, bigots at Twin Cities Pride

24 06 2010

The accepting of gay people in the Netherlands still leaves a lot to be desired. According to a SCP poll gays are not excepted well by religious people, lowed educated one and Turkish and Moroccans(surprise, surprise) More than half on gay teens has thought about suicide. I can relate, so did I. Still think overall it is pretty good with the acceptance here, but we are not there yet.

A federal court ruled in Philadelphia , that the Boy Scouts can still discriminate against gays even though that goes against the city’s anti-discrimination law. They cannot be kicked out of a city-owned building and do not even have to pay rent, all because of their First Amendment rights. I do not know the specific details about this case/the U.S law enough to know if the city could even get them out with the First Amendment rules in mind but it is ridiculous that gays are still not allowed at the Boy scouts.

After being 9 years in the making New York finally passed an anti-bullying law though the Senate that now only needs to go to Governor Paterson’s desk for a signature. It passed 58-3, except for 3 Republicans. It is only for public school and applies to events on school grounds and school events and will prohibit harassment and discrimination based on gender, sexuality, color, religion and more. Took forever but great is passed.

Am anti-gay Evangelist couple Johnson is allowed to distribute bibles and anti-gay leaflets at Twin Cities Pride. The organizers paid the city 36.000 for the day and want to decide themselves who can have a booth at the parade and want to ban the Johnson’s trough a court-ruling. The religious law firm ADF filed a complaint and say they should be able to be there and speak their hate. The Johnson’s were banned last year but showed up anyway and got arrested. Here is a clip from last year before the arrest. I dunno about this one, there is Freedom of Speech, but these people are just doing it to hate and cause trouble.





Gay news, Jesse Helms, NY Gender Nondiscrimination Law, U.K politican outed/resigns, Kylie’s clip denied for lesbian kiss

31 05 2010

Recent records show that Jesse Helms, the late senator who was a very active anti-gay politician, had called the FBI because he got death-threats from gays back in the day. It is not surprising gays wanted to hurt him. He was against aids funding back in the 80’s saying it was caused by disgusting human behavior , fought against the civil rights of gays and voted against any pro-gay law. Nothing ever happened to him though, but I hope it did cost him some sleepless nights back when he was alive, he ruined many people’s lives.

The chances of the Gender Expression Nondiscrimination Act becoming Law in Ny got a mayor boost this week. They have 32 senators on board now, enough to get a majority. It would add gender identity to the human rights law that protects people against discrimination in employment, credit, housing. About time, it is hard enough to have gender issues as it is to have to worry about housing and jobs.

Britain’s Treasury Minister David Laws was one of the stars of the new coalition but has now become its first casualty. He funneled government money to his boyfriend by getting him a room he rented and was not out as gay. The  self-made millionaire and Liberal Democrat( surprise, not a conservative) is still known by colleagues as an honourable man who not went into politics for financial gain. He does not seem that honourable to me.

MTV Asia is not gonna show the new clip of Kylie Minogue, called “All the lovers” because it features a lesbian kiss. All the nudity in it is fine but 2 girls kissing… Pretty pathetic. A short preview of the clip.





Dutch gay news, no discrimination gays at school, gaydar explained, hate crimes law in Holland?

30 05 2010

Party Democrats’66 in the Netherlands have come up with a new law that would not allow discrimination against gays at schools. Schools from now on cannot fire or deny a teacher for the sole reason of being gay. So far that only happened at christian schools.

A research team from the University of Leiden(where my sister graduated) have come up with an explanation for a gaydar. They presented 42 people, both gay and straight with photos of outlines of large squares and rectangles. When the men and women were presented with similar question about the shown pictures, straights answered faster and made more mistakes. Gays were slower but had more answers right especially the smaller ones. Gays have higher perceptual skills and are more analytical that allows them to recognize other gays faster. I dunno, I do have a gaydar that works very well, but if it is because of this…

The Green Party in the Netherlands( a party that I normally do not care about, I am not green) have come up with a good new law-idea right before election time. Why not earlier??? They want a hate crimes law that gives harder punishments(with 1/3) against people because of their sexuality, religion, ethnicity, handicap or age. Of course I am against all acts of crime but I do think if it is for one of the above reasons, it should way harder. I have to be honest and say I care most about handicap or sexuality.





Gay news, Gay Rights ranking Europe, Zimbabwe arrests, John McCain and the gays

26 05 2010

The International Gay and Lesbian Association has released its Rainbow Europe County Index on how legislation affects LGBT people. Sweden is number 1 followed by Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway and Spain. Those 4 have anti-discrimination laws not enshrined in the constitution, like Sweden(but they do mostly use it) From the EU, Cyprus, Latvia and Poland not good and finished last. From non EU countries Turkey, Russia and Ukraine did bad.

Two members of a Zimbabwe Gay organization have been arrested. At first the government and police said it was because of drugs and porn but yesterday it was made clear they got a letter from former SF mayor Brown that was critical about that monster of a President Mugabe. Mugabe described gays as less than pigs and dogs. The 2 men are still in jail, hopefully unharmed…

Senator John McCain is anti gay marriage, opposes gay adoption, against gays in the military and against ENDA(discrimination against gays in workplace). On the other hand his wife has been a vocal supporter of gay marriage, his daughter is super pro-gay and now he hired a gay man, Mark Buse to run his campaign for re-election of Senator from Arizona. He should listen to his inner circle more.

NY Pride will be shorter than ever in a cost-cutting measure by the NYPD. It will go from 36/5th instead of 52/5th but still ends in Christopher Street. Apparently the same thing will happen to all parades in NY. I think it is totally fine, more crowd on a denser area and less to walk for the marcher in the (maybe) heat.
